*mulled spiced cranberry juice- There are many recipes for creating a 'mulled' juice or wine. Based on using a 1-liter carton of cranberry juice we suggest a combination of 1 sliced lemon and 1 sliced orange plus the zest from 2 additional fruits combined with fresh grated ginger, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, and cinnamon—all to your taste.

Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan and simmer for around 45 minutes. Be careful not to boil. Strain and chill well before use. Store in the refrigerator and the juice will last for around 1 week. For best results prepare mulled spiced cranberry juice at least 24 hrs. in advance.

Eggnog

Ingredients:

8 Large Eggs

4 Egg Yolks

1 cup Granulated Sugar

5 cups Whole Milk

1 1/2 cups Mount Gay ECLIPSE Rum

1 cup 80-proof Bourbon

1 tbsp. Pure Vanilla Extract

1/2 tsp. Freshly Grated Nutmeg

2 cups Whipping Cream

2 tbsp. Superfine Sugar

Directions:

In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs, yolks, and granulated sugar until smooth. Pour into a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Stir in milk gradually, blending well with each addition. Heat slowly over very low heat, stirring steadily until the mixture reaches 160-170° F on an instant-read thermometer. The custard should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon: If you draw your finger across the back of the spoon, the line will remain distinct and the custard sauce is done.

Pour the custard through a fine-meshed sieve into large bowl. Stir in vanilla the Mount Gay ECLIPSE rum, bourbon, and nutmeg. Let mixture cool, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold, at least 3 hours and or up to 1 day.

Just before serving, whip cream to very soft peaks, beating in superfine sugar as you go. Gently fold into custard mixture until incorporated. Serve from a chilled punch bowl or ladle into individual martini glasses, garnishing with grated nutmeg if desired.
